Alex Caceres vs Sean Woodson at UFC on ESPN 56 in St. Louis, May 11

Oh boy, get ready for this one. Alex Caceres is stepping into the Octagon with Missouri’s very own Sean Woodson. And guess where? Right in the heart of St. Louis, Missouri, at the Enterprise Center. Mark your calendars for May 11.

Now, here’s a little nugget for ya. The news broke out on X (you know, the artist formerly known as Twitter). It was Woodson’s crew over at Iridium Sports Agency who spilled the beans.

Caceres, also known as “Bruce Leeroy,” is looking to bounce back. He’s coming off a unanimous decision loss to Giga Chikadze last August. But don’t let that fool you. The man’s been on a tear, winning seven of his last nine fights. Only Soddiq Yussuf and Chikadze have managed to snag wins against him.

On the flip side, Woodson’s riding high. He’s undefeated in his last five, clinching a nail-biter against Charles Jourdain at UFC 297. This Dana White’s Contender Series alum has notched victories over some tough cookies like Kyle Bochniak, Terrance McKinney, Dennis Buzukja, and Collin Anglin.

But wait, there’s more! UFC on ESPN 56 isn’t just about these featherweights. We’ve got a lightweight clash that’ll have you on the edge of your seat. Michael Johnson is going toe-to-toe with Matt Frevola. And if that’s not enough, Alonzo Menifield and Carlos Ulberg from City Kickboxing are set to light up the light heavyweight division.

So, what do you think? Sounds like a night full of fights you won’t want to miss, huh?
